Altera, Wi-LAN to partner on WiMAX modems

Posted by inet - 2005-10-27

MANHASSET, N.Y. — FPGA supplier Altera Corp. has formed a partnership with Canadian broadband wireless technology provider Wi-LAN Inc. to deliver a programmable, low-cost WiMAX-compliant base transceiver station (BTS) modem solution supporting the IEEE 802.16-2004 standard.

The solution allows base station developers to deliver WiMAX-compliant products that can be upgraded in the field by service providers in response to changing customer requirements and market conditions. The programmability of Altera's FPGAs, which form an integral part of the solution, also gives developers flexibility to make rapid changes to their design and still meet their time to market goals.

"We partnered with Altera because their comprehensive product portfolio is ideal for addressing the varied needs of WiMAX applications, including performance-intensive digital signal processing, cost optimization and high integration," said John Seliga, senior vice president and general manager of Wi-LAN's WiMAX semiconductor IP solutions division, in a statement.

Designers can use either Altera's high-density Stratix II or low-cost Cyclone II FPGAs, as well as Nios II embedded processors, with Wi-LAN's WiMAX PHY and MAC intellectual property (IP) cores to build the BTS modem solution. These technologies support the diverse hardware requirements, processing speeds, flexibility and integration required of the WiMAX standard.
